I think this is one of the Japanese-only episodes that are available only when you have one of those boxed sets....

As far as I know, you are right, AprilSeven. There are 6 separate DVDs that each have 3 episodes on them, they are under $20, but still R2. There is a thread around here, "ATOM BEST OF" or something like that. GREATEST ROBOT 1 & 2 is on 1 of them, but none have MONSTER MANTLER.

I just want to thank you, Jeffbert for sharing these images with us! I know the TetsuWan Atomu DVD set is hard to come by and must be expensive! I have the Japanese episode guide, but that only gives you a glimpse of each episode. So thank you again and I cannot wait until your next episode spotlight! I :heart: :astro: :)

The Mantler gives him about 5 good swats, before finishing.

After this, the Mantler makes him do an Indian war dance, and a few other things, as though he were just a marionette. :D

:p

There should be over a dozen pics on this post, but, for some reason, image shack is not displaying several of my images, some pages have all displayed, while other image shack pages have seemingly random or arbitrary ones missing. The names are there, but nothing else.

Atoman noted the similarity between this episode & The Twilight Zone's pilot: the protagonists both awaken to find themselves in a deserted town. They both hear noises, & hoping to find people, run to investigate; but find no traces of life.


This ep has similarities to the T Zone’s pilot. E. Holloman and Atom both awaken to find themselves in deserted town / city. Evidence is found of people having just been there, but no one is found. Both characters despair.

“The World, The Flesh, and the Devil” (1959) had the guy who was sole survivor of nuclear war go to a radio station and play tapes to learn what had happened. Atom does likewise. Of course, there are too few similarities to do more than merely suggest that this episode may have been inspired by either of these, though Tezuka was known for his borrowing. Besides that, he may have by this time been almost completely uninvolved in this series.
